I had the same problem. I put a Zero Gravity Double Bubble on my '95 ZX-6R and didn't like the way it look because the back of the guages, wiring, etc. showed. On the factory screen this area was painted on the inside. I did the same thing. I masked off the area I didn't want painted on the inside and painted it with semi-gloss black paint from a shaker can. It looks just like the factory screen did from the inside and the outside.

Didn't even think about that. I just got ZG db, can't install it for another 2 weeks + cause I don't have the hardware (backorder). I guess I'll think about the paint also.

Painted it, no before and after pics but I masked it of, gave it four coats allowing it to dry between each coat. Looks mint!

Took the rubber bungs off the old one, screwed it on and it's all cool, except...there sems to be a gap at the very front of the screen where it meets the front fairing. Has anyone ever had this happen? Does it go with time? If I tighten the screws at the front the gap kinda bulges! Help anyone?

Mine has that little gap there too, I think it's a side affect of the bubble shape. They just can't have it cureved a little more there to line up flush, and still retain the shape of the rest of it..

It's not a problem though, no one else will ever notice it unless you point it out :)

I don;t have any gaps on mine. How did you install it? You should put all the screws in first, and tighten each one a little bit at a time. Then when it's securly in place go ahead and tighten them more. But they don't have to be real tight anyway.
